    When typing on my C312 Advent wireless keyboard I find that some of the characters have not been added onto the text document. This is most annoying as it is usually the 'i' that is missing, more so when used as a capital. Spell-checker cannot detect misspelling of in when the 'i' is missing.

    http://www.acer.com.ph/spareparts.php



    Hope this helps ,Let me know thanks

  • Verne Koti Aug 03, 2008

    I think I know what your problem is .....

    It just dawned on me.......lol



    This machine was designed for VISTA not XP



    Check the manual out for comparisons

  • Verne Koti Aug 03, 2008

    Check page 22 of the manual.



    If XP was loaded on to this machine then the install may still be missing components the machine will need to function correctly but if its worked before then ,the installer may have to reinstall the system again to bring back to factory default settings again.



    I must appologise for not recognising this earlier as we could have avoided a lot of down time from the start just recongnising the correct symptoms,



    I hope I have given you the help you were looking for,

    Please rate me accordingly thanks ....

  • Verne Koti Aug 03, 2008

    I have based my findings on the model Acer 5630 posted as your header,



    thanks Misterdj

    How do I type the copyright icon?


    Hi David,

    To do that you need to follow the instruction below:
    To use the codes:
    • Place your cursor in the location where you wish to insert a special character.
    • Activate the numeric key pad on the right of the keyboard by pressing Num Lock (upper right of keyboard). ...
    • While pressing down the ALT key, type the four-digit code on the numeric key pad at the right edge of the keyboard.
    The way I normally do it easily is search Google or Bing for "copyright" and copy the symbol from there and then paste it where it is needed.

    Keyboard


    Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

    Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

    I have ASUS EEEPC 1005 HA Yesterday the character that comes after "A" stopped working . I have tried to open it, tried to get rid of the dust even put some WD 40 on the key too , its not jammed,...


    Carefully pry up they A key.

    You will see a little rubber thingy under the key, pop it up and you will see a little circuit board under where the A key was located.

    Very gently clean SOME of the gunk off the circuit board contact, while keeping the circuit board undamaged (I usually find a nice new rubber pencil eraser works fine for this task).

    Then gently wipe the bottom of the little rubber thingy off with a piece of printer paper (you are going for keeping the black on the rubber thingy but the sticky gunk off)

    Then replace the rubber thingy and the A key and give it a go,

    If that does not help then yes you will need a new keyboard. You can also disconnect the ribbon cable that goes to the keyboard and connect an external usb keyboard and try that to get you by.

    There should be a sequence that you need to press to change it from one type of keyboard characters to another. Look for a key that has the symbol of a keyboard on it. Most likely this is the key that is causing you the problems. Typically you have to press the Function key that is near the space bar as well as the key with the symbol on it to change it from one character set to the other. Evey laptop keyboard is alittle different than the next when it comes to which keys are "functions keys", so you will have to examine your keyboard to find the correct key on you laptop.

    ACER ASPIRE 4520 keyboard problem


    In laptops with a small screen (14,15" ) the keyboard is accordingly smaller than for desktops, and there is no numeric keypads, or arrow pad. So the keys 7,8,9 0, U,I,O,P,J,K,L ,comma, dot, / have a triple function: the primary function, the shifted function, and a third accessed by an FN-Fx key combination. The actual key combination may depend on manufacturer. If that key combination has been activated, the foregoing keys perfom the third function they were designed for..
    Read your laptop manual to find out how the Fn- function key works and deactivate the Fn-Fx combination responsible for your keyboard behavior..(this article was posted by k24674)..

    or else u r keyboard is likely to b defective or ur ram or the system board..
    lightly strike/tap the keypad using ur hand..
    if u r a professional, open the keyboard..deep clean all the carbon contacts beneath the keys using Iso-Propyl alcohol..put/stick 'Carbon-Dots' (available in cheap level spare market) as n where necessary..

    hope it'll work..
    always better to seek professional supervision esp of ur system admin/vendor....
